What can chiropractic do for car accident injuries? After all, car accidents are common in our daily lives. Injuries from car accidents can range from minor to severe and require extensive care to ensure your return to optimal health. Even minor accidents require a doctor’s visit. Seeing a chiropractor following an auto accident can help you avoid long-term pain associated with injuries, without the need for drugs or surgery. Read here about what chiropractic can do for you if you’ve been injured in an auto accident.

3 Things That Chiropractic Can Do for Car Accident Injuries

1. Treat Whiplash

Whiplash is a very common injury in an auto accident. Symptoms of whiplash include headaches, nausea, and dizziness. Whiplash occurs when your head moves suddenly and violently back and forth. The muscles and ligaments in your neck will be overstretched and can cause severe pain and numbness. Chiropractic care can help you overcome whiplash with stretch therapy and other adjustments.

2. Avoid Costly Surgery

If you wait too long, surgery may be your only option for auto accident injuries. However, seeking chiropractic care can quicken your recovery. In some cases, it may even help you avoid surgery. Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations can help with pain relief and soreness that occurs after an auto accident. X-rays may be taken to make sure that there are no fractures or other serious issues. Atlas Total Health Chiropractic will provide a complimentary X-ray with your first visit.

3. Shorten Recovery Time

Improved circulation with chiropractic care can also speed up your healing process. But if you have suffered broken bones, our chiropractic services will help you get rehabilitated and moving better after they have healed. Chiropractic care can help loosen soft tissue and provide immediate relief to areas injured in accidents like your neck, back, and shoulders.
